Beaver Park

Beaver Park is in the seaside community of Sidney, one of thirteen communities that form the Capital Regional District of British Columbia. This is a long and narrow park with a couple of swings set in a fine gravel. Most of the park is a large grass covered area in this quiet residential neighborhood of Sidney, B.C. The park itself has a few plum trees and is fenced along Bowerbank Road with a low chain-link fence. Most of the properties that border on this park have wood fences while a few have cedar hedges. There is access along grass covered easements into Beaver Park from Pollard Place, Sparling Place and Vallis Place. Rathdown Park is across Bowerbank Road while Resthaven Park and Resthaven Linear Park are a little further way.
